Fortran remains one of the principal languages used in scientific, numerical and engineering programming and a series of revisions to the standard versions of the language have progressively enhanced its power. The latest standard-Fortran 2003-greatly extends the power of the language, by introducing object-oriented concepts, interoperability with C, better integration with operating systems and many other enhancements. This text details all these new features.
Fortran 95/2003 Explained, significantly expands on the second edition of Fortran 90/95 Explained (also publised by Oxford University Press): the opening chapters contain a complete description of the Fortran 95 language and are followed by descriptions of three formally approved extensions; six completely new chapters describe in detail the features that are new in Fortran 2003, but the distinction between the various language levels is kept clear throughout.
Authored by the leading experts in the development of the language, this is the only complete and authoritative description of the two languages (Fortran 95 and Fortran 2003). Containing numerous examples, exercises and solutions, and an extensive index, it is highly suitable as both a student textbook and practitioner reference.

About the Author:


Michael Metcalf worked for many years at CERN, Geneva. He is the author of a range of publications, including Fortran 90/95 Explained (with John Reid) and Effective FORTRAN 77 (Oxford University Press), and FORTRAN Optimization (Academic Press). He is the editor of ACM Fortran Forum. John Reid is well known as a numerical analyst and is a co-author of Direct Methods for Sparse Matrices (OUP). He is the Convener of the ISO Fortran Committee and has played a leading role in the development of many of the features of Fortran 95 and 2003.
Malcolm Cohen is a mathematician and the leading compiler writer at NAG in Oxford. He has participated actively in the development of Fortran standards and was a major deisgner of Fortran 2003's object-oriented features.

Review:


"Fortran is one of the principle languages used in the fields of scientific, numerical, and engineering programming today. This textbook for advanced students and practitioners describes the standards of Fortran's latest two versions in a manner that aims to illuminate the implications of its features and support its use in the writing of new programs. Included in the appendices are a list of the intrinsic procedures; a description of the obsolescent features; an extended example illustrating the use of pointers and recursion; advice on avoiding compilation cascades; a glossary; and solutions to most of the exercises."--SciTech Book News
